‘The Good Dinosaur’: Pixar May Suffer First Loss at Box Office

7 December 2015 2:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Good Dinosaur” is shaping up to be a novelty. After 16 films, including such classics as “Toy Story” and “Wall-e,” the story of a young Apatosaurus’ quest to reunite with his family is shaping up to be Pixar’s first box office failure.

With a production budget of $200 million and roughly $150 million spent on marketing, industry analysts and executives say that Pixar and its parent company Disney must make $500 million to break even theatrically. Currently, the film has made $131.3 million globally and is showing signs of fading fast. At this point, many project that “The Good Dinosaur” will be lucky to crack the $400 million mark. That would make it the lowest grossing Pixar film since “A Bug’s Life” made $363.4 million worldwide in 1998.

“It’s not resonating like a typical Pixar film,” said Erik Handler, an analyst with Mkm Partners. “It’s on a path where they’re going to »

"Good Dinosaur" To Be Pixar's First Flop?

7 December 2015 1:20 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After sixteen films, Pixar might finally be facing one of its first misfires with Variety reporting that the recently released "The Good Dinosaur" is "shaping up to be Pixar's first box office failure."

With a production budget of $200 million and a further $150 million spent on marketing, analysts have indicated the film has to make $500 million at the global box-office to break even theatrically.

At present, the film has made just $131.3 million globally and is already fading faster than Pixar's other fare in the markets it has already opened in. Scoring soft reviews, it also opened to just $39.1 million in its initial weekend before dropping by more than 60% in its second weekend. Most Pixar's fall less than 50% in the same period.

Mkm Partners analyst Erik Handler says: "It's not resonating like a typical Pixar film. It's on a path where they're going to need home entertainment to drive profitability. Usually with Pixar, »

Television that Home Video Forgot: Twins (2005)

22 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Twins

Showcase Inventory

Created by David Kohan, Max Mutchnick

Produced by KoMut Entertainment, Warner Bros Entertainment

Aired on The WB for 1 season (18 episodes) from September 16, 2005 – March 3, 2006

Cast

Sara Gilbert as Mitchee Arnold

Molly Stanton as Farrah Arnold

Melanie Griffith as Lee Arnold

Mark Linn-Baker as Alan Arnold

Show Premise

Highly successful lingerie company owners and married couple Alan and Lee Arnold decide to retire from their CEO position and name their non identical twin daughters as their successors. The two sisters, Mitchee and Farrah, couldn’t be more different from one another if they tried. Oddly, the two take after their parents almost exactly, with Mitchee taking after her father, who is brainy, uptight, and reserved, while Farrah takes after Lee, an alluring, uninhibited, and seemingly vapid blonde.  It would seem that for the parents, the notion of “opposite attracts” is what brought them together, but for the two sisters, »

Summer Box Office Set to Cool Down

4 August 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The summer box office has peaked.

Nothing, not “Fantastic Four” nor “Straight Outta Compton,” will allow it to suck in the rarefied air it was breathing in May and June. Over the next few weeks, domestic ticket sales will struggle to keep pace with the previous year’s numbers.

Although the summer of 2014 was one of the worst in decades, August was uncharacteristically robust. “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” formed a potent duo, jump-starting multiplexes and powering ticket sales for the month past the $1 billion mark for the first time in history.

This go round, while “Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and “Sinister 2″ may have their fans, there’s nothing on the horizon that seems likely to repeat that trick.

“‘Guardians’ was obviously one of the biggest movies of the year and there’s nothing here that matches that,” said Phil Contrino, vice »

28 April 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While David Krumholtz’s most prominent television role to date has been in the CBS show Numb3rs, the performer has also displayed an adeptness in comedic roles, from movies such as Superbad to guest appearances on Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 and The League, as well as a leading role in the short-lived sitcom Partners.

Krumholtz is slated to play the titular character, a 76 year old woman named Gertrude Rotblum, aka Gigi, who comes across a secret stash of millions and decides to use it to gain experiences she missedo out on previously. »

Amazon Movies May Crack Theatrical Windows, But It Won’t Break Them

19 January 2015 2:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amazon Studios is the latest digital player that aims to upend the film distribution business by releasing films in theaters and on digital platforms earlier than its big studio rivals.

Day-and-date and short theatrical windows have long been used for niche films by distribs including Radius, IFC and Magnolia. But Amazon’s entry into the feature film business with Amazon Original Movies, led by veteran indie producer Ted Hope, is another major move by digital giants to disrupt the traditional Hollywood model.

It’s one more way that the theatrical industry is fraying under pressure from new, deep-pocketed players and changes in consumer habits. But Amazon’s entry into feature films is unlikely to convince studios to try earlier windows, despite the $30 million Sony’s “The Interview” made in its fire-sale release.

Major theater chains remain adamant that they will not show films that premiere simultaneously in the home or »
